I'd say there are some that a reasonable and some that are just ridiculous. I want the former.

My M1A 'Scout Squad' has a muzzle brake, and it's a .308...

Can't say how much good it does, as I've never had it off the gun.

If the range is crowded, I just shoot one of my other rifles. Nobody has ever complained, or looked funny at me.

My Savage 111 .300 Win Mag is fitted with an adjustable muzzle break you can turn on and off, and it creates quite the blast whenever I pull the trigger. But when it's on there is so much recoil reduction it blew me away! Well didn't blow me away because there was no recoil....

I really like the look of the Surefire muzzle brakes. May be you could try that.

Yea, it would look great on your savage. You could go with these:

Yes those are what I was thinking, but I need to check if they have porting on the bottom because that is why I was changing from my stock one...

I have 2 of the Surefire SOCOM MB's 1 on my LMT MWS and 1 on my SIG 716. I chose that model after see a video on You Tube of the flash signature of the SOCOM mb. None of the brakes on any of my rifles are quite. Especially to the sides of the shooter. for that you need a suppressor.

Ya if you're looking for sound reduction, don't use a "flash-hider"/muzzle break, but they are really nice for recoil and accuracy. But samnev what do you think of your surefire breaks? Are they worth it?

They are excellent at reducing recoil but can be a real PITA to time correctly. The SOCOM I received had shims that were out of tolerance and you could not use the timing wheel in the booklet they send with the brake to time the brake. So it took quite a while to get the brake to line up properly (time). I don't think I would want to go thru that again unless they have the problem squared away. When I was having the problem I posted it and quite a few others had the same problem. Maybe it was a bad patch, I don't know. This was about a year ago.
